Welcome back to the Meet Our Team Q&A series. My name is Daniela Williams, Project Manager at ISE, and I’ll be asking ISE team members questions to help give insight into what makes us tick. 

It's one of our favorite days of the year - Pi Day!  Today I'm interviewing Curran Lipsett, Software Developer, Product Owner, and the lead of the Fun Committee - which organizes a delicious Pie Baking Contest to celebrate Pi(e) Day.  In the past year Curran has also been heading up the transition of team members to the Vault in Cedar Rapids.  Curran wears quite a few hats at ISE! .
